After completing the Frontiers in Robotics course, the student will be able to:
  • Explain the state-of-the-art developments in a specific robotics-related research field
  • Perform a structured literature search and review
  • Write a literature report
In the Frontiers in Robotics course the student will dive into a specific research topic related to robotics. The students will attend meetings and seminars given by research groups, programmes and consortia, and will write a literature overview of this topic.
The workflow will be as follows; the student…
  1. first attends a “Twente Robotics Symposium” for topic orientation
  2. finds a supervisor/mentor from list provided above, and discusses a topic with him/her
  3. writes a proposal for what (s)he will be doing the literature overview on
  4. keeps attending relevant meetings (e.g., research group/lab meetings, doctoral dissertations, MSc colloquia in research group, Twente Robotics Symposia). For each meeting/symposium the student will bring an attendance form to be signed. The student will attend such meetings at least four times during the duration of course.
  5. performs the agreed upon literature study
  6. writes a literature report according to a given template
  7. hands in the literature report and scanned attendance form on Canvas, to be checked by the assessor.
Step 1 can be skipped if a mentor has already been found before a symposium.

On Canvas the student will be provided with learning materials on how to perform the literature search and how to write the literature report.
